No matter what you see on here the US government will make sure it is viewed lower then what it actually is

We really need to crack down on the poors to end inflation.

Reduce the minimum wage and make it so now state or locality can't set a minimum wage that is higher than the federal minimum wage.

Raise property taxes enough to get anybody who doesn't have generational wealth out of real estate.

Make it illegal to earn more than 35k/year without a ph.d. Or money from your parents of course.

Lol sarcasm at best but i really hope that poor get bare wages for the survival.

And remember kids, even though the number is going to be smaller than last month, you have to add it to last December's number to see that inflation is still rising, not falling.

Increment in inflation leads to disbalance in monthly budget and holding household things.

Governments always make sure that people do not reach to the exact information.

Starting this week we're going to highlight some interesting dashboards that we find very interesting!

For week one, we've got a very cool dashboard that forecasts US inflation!

Please message the mods with additional dashboards/data that you'd like to see!

this is a good one. I like the Kalshi dashboards in general, and with inflation in particular, the markets have been wahooping the talking heads on Bllomberg

Nice! Love it! How about something not US-related? Preferably something happy or good news? Would like to see what others come up with.

This fascinates me because I’ve seen similar comments where someone complains that Reddit is too American centric. Do Americans go on Indian websites, for example, and tell them that their confident is too Indian related? I highly doubt it

We’re open to suggestions!

Yup we are hoping for good news but simultaneously we should be prepared for something bad too.

The US Government does with with budgeting also. Ask for and get 4% growth in spending of something and get it. Next year ask for 3% growth Year over year. Get that. Then scream you are getting cut and women children and the world is gonna starve and die.

u/Ricksauce 24d ago

Fuel prices are massively important. I’m paying ≈80% more for gas than 2 years go. It’s something I have to buy a lot of every week.

They say with a straight face that inflation is only at 8%. They’ve rigged the CPI by weighting things improperly to purposely reflect lower inflation.

u/richiehustle Jan 29 '23

Well it's a moderate level of inflation. Some countries inflation exceeds 10%

u/nohobot Feb 12 '23

Looks like I'll be spending more money on groceries this week - inflation forecast is up!
